Jeri, Tehachapi is southeast of Bakersfield, California. From there you'd take SR58 and turn north on SR14 to skirt the eastern Sierra, catch US 395 past Bishop, then head east on US6 to Tonopah, where I hope the Sidewinder Cafe's still open, next time I drive through on my way to Kat's...oh.

Tucumcari is in eastern New Mexico, so to get there you'd take I-10 east from Tucson, head north at Las Cruces on I-25, then east again at Albuquerque on I-40. Easy peasy. Except, wait, I forgot about riding on the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed...

But I digress. What an outstanding time we had this year. I feel closer to y'all than ever. And oh, the music! I wouldn't know where to begin -- but I am rich in memories, and one very happy camper.

Thank you, my friends, for smiles and camaraderie; for bleary-eyed, silent companionship after a sleepless Saturday night; for giving of yourselves and putting your hearts into the music we made. And thanks so much to FSGW for hosting us and working so hard to bring our Brigadoon to life each year on the shores of Chesapeake Bay. Until we meet again!
